      Number of employees down 3.6% worldwide to 16,736

      Due to structural adjustments in line with the short to medium-term fall in demand, Krones reduced its workforce in 2020 by 617 to 16,736 employees. The reduction in the workforce, which for the most part was already initiated in 2019, reduced the number of employees at German locations by 369 to 10,364 in the reporting period.

      As the Covid-19 pandemic also temporarily slowed the expansion of Krones ’ global footprint, the number of employees abroad was also down, falling by 248 to 6,372. The share of employees outside Germany was consequently 38.1%, as in the previous year.



      Emerging markets workforce also slightly reduced

      The number of employees in emerging market regions also decreased slightly in the reporting period, by 3.2% to 4,055. After the sharp increase (by 33.3%) in the previous year, the number of employees in emerging markets thus consolidated at a high level as a result of the crisis. As a percentage of the total workforce, however, foreign employees in emerging markets – where Krones has generated around 50% of consolidated revenue for many years – went up slightly from 24.1% in the previous year to 24.2%.

      Customised additional training for staff members and managers

      The high qualification of our employees and managers is a decisive factor for the success of Krones. Therefore, the human resource development department is permanently keeping an eye on additional training and support for all employees. 

      Every employee has individual skills and areas for further skills developments. This is why  the human resource development department is concentrating on measures that are customised precisely to the needs of the individual participants. The professional skills as well as the social skills and methodical skills are supported here. Altogether, the offered seminars comprise more than 450 topics. These topics include IT and language courses just as much as special field seminars as well as communications and method training. In addition to external specialists, also our employees carry out training sessions. Having internal knowledge, they can pass on this valuable know-how directly on other colleagues. In addition to the traditional training, we also offer eLearning modules thus providing the option of doing individual trainings without the pressure of time and location.
